The name of Elon Musk has gained strength in recent years after becoming one of the most influential people due to his immense fortune. As well as being the CEO of Tesla and the founder of SpaceX, he was also recently in the headlines over his interest in social media platform, Twitter, and due to his relationship with Amber Heard, ex-partner of Johnny Depp. In case you missed it, they didn’t get on so well.

And this is not all. The billionaire is now in the news because he has become a father for the ninth time after the birth of two twins with Shivon Zilis, one of the business executives of his company, as revealed by Business Insider. The source obtained this information after accessing a series of official documents, in which the parent requested the change of surnames of his two little ones so that they bear the surname Musk. In addition, the couple had hidden the arrival of these two babies, since they were born at the end of last year.

However, the businessman has now confirmed the story tweeting with some humor.

Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis. A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far.

A few moments later Musk encouraged all families to have children.

“I hope you have big families and congrats to those who already do!”.

So far, the South African tycoon has had nine children in total, one of whom died of illness at ten weeks, and this is the second time he has had twins, following the birth of Griffin and Xavier Musk, who are the oldest of this wide range of brothers.
